The flu is a contagious respiratory illness that is caused by influenza viruses. It occurs seasonally (October through May), and is spread through droplets when people with a flu cough, sneeze or talk. Flu symptoms can be mild to severe, and include:

  • A cough
  • A sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • A headache
  • Fatigue
  • Fever or feeling feverish/chills

Children and some adults may also experience vomiting and diarrhea.

Young children, adults 65+, pregnant women and people with certain chronic illnesses are all at a higher risk of developing serious complications. The best way to protect ourselves, and those more vulnerable, from the flu, is to get an annual flu shot.

If you do come down with the flu, Saddleback providers can prescribe an antiviral medication proven to lessen the severity and duration of your illness. When taken promptly, antivirals reduce the time you are sick by 1-2 days and can also prevent serious complications, such as pneumonia.
